Our oldest daughter (age 7) requests this quiche often, so when I made it for her this week, she was sure happy. I like the fact that it calls for only 2 eggs. Mix and match the cheeses to suit your taste.
1 cup shreeded Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (I usually use Mozarella)
1 9-inch frozen ready-to-bake pie shell, thawed (I just make mine)
1/2 cup real bacon bits (or crumbled cooked sausage)
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the cheeses and sprinkle half of the mixture into the pie shell. Sprinkle with the bcon bits and then cover with the remaining cheese.
In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, onion powder, and pepper and beat until thoroughly mixed. Pour over the cheese and sprinkle with the nutmeg.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until firm and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before slicing into wedges.
Sometimes I will serve this with a salad and bread for a nice lunch or if we have it at supper time, I'll make some fried potatoes to go along with it.
